Details of Disappearance

Tobin was last seen in Riverside, California on July 7, 2010. He left his home in the 3900 block of Redwood Drive to go put some items in a storage unit, and never returned.

On July 11, Tobin's silver 2007 Toyota Corolla was found abandoned at Carlson Dog Park in the 4600 block of Mission Inn Avenue, less than a mile from his home. The items he'd planned to put in the storage unit were still inside the car, as were his wallet and cellular phone. There was no sign of him at the scene.

Tobin hasn't accessed his bank accounts since his disappearance and he never picked up his last paycheck. His family believes he's dead. Investigators don't believe he committed suicide or left of his own accord, but it's unclear what caused his disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
